The bauhaus city

Ingolf Kern (author), Birgit von Schössow (illustrations)

On this ten-part journey of discovery, children get to know all the exciting buildings of Dessau. They are invited to a tea party in the Atelierhaus, and to the legendary “swimming day” at the Kornhaus in the River Elbe. They find out that kitchens can also be bathrooms at the same time. And that the houses the Bauhaus teachers lived in look like white cubes, and the bedrooms in these houses are sometimes painted in black. Through funny and informative anecdotes the children learn how the Bauhaus changed everyday life.
